I think it will novel an fun but I don't see it getting used around roads and trees too much. I have some Vibrams for the trees...

If nothing else they will look sweet on the wall, or made into a clock.

@yearofrolling
Around here, there are so many hills and trees. Lots of tight fairways. They're laminated, which usually is pretty strong, especially if the grain crosses over. I could imagine they're sealed, too. But humidity would kill them just as much as trees or a road would.

Trophys are a good idea. Maybe one could get a custom wood burned image. Kinda like a CFR disc.

When I get mine I'll throw them and let you guys know. It'd be nice to get some sort of guarantee against cracking (since the site claims none have ever cracked before ).

I agree the site is written such that it seems like english is their second language.

Seems like the putter would get pretty beat up fast from hitting the basket/chains.

The website doesn't have any info on the flight characteristics of the discs which would be helpful. I wonder how consistent the discs are as far as that goes or if they all fly uniquely.

My friend's grandpa has some old disc golf discs, and they're rather large slabs of wood. While I'm sure you're just as right, I didn't say the first, I said some of the original.
